Michael Hoey joins big turnout for Bobby Browne's testimonial
We wrote earlier this month about Bobby Browne's retirement after 48 years of loyal service to the members of Laytown and Bettystown. Last weekend, many of his fellow professionals including Ryder Cup player Des Smyth and multiple European Tour winner Michael Hoey turned out to pay homage to the great PGA professional and teacher.
Bobby Browne retires after 48 years at Laytown and Bettystown
Born in 1942, Bobby Browne grew up in the foothills of the Dublin mountains at Edmondstown and by the time he was ten years old, he was caddying regularly at the local club where characters such as Sydney Jackson, Maurice Cohen, Jackie Bloom and the pantomime baddie Vernon Hayden gave him regular employment.
